The EU is not the USSR

Jon Danzig |

A Brexiteer in the BBC Question Time audience last Thursday compared the EU to the Soviet Union. It’s an entirely false and unfounded comparison. There is absolutely no resemblance between the EU and the USSR. Such comparisons are reckless, childish and nonsensical. It shows no understanding or respect for those people who truly suffered and […]

It's not undemocratic to challenge Brexit

Jon Danzig |

There is nothing else like it on the internet: the unique and growing portfolio of over 300 graphics and articles continuing to present the case every day for Britain to remain in the EU. I started the Reasons2Remain Facebook Community Campaign on Monday 4 April 2016. With a small team of supporters, for the following 11 […]

The Brexit Bodge: What they said

Jon Danzig |

  The EU referendum was only a week ago, and already the false claims and promises of ‘Leave’ campaigners are painfully unravelling. THEY SAID that outside the EU, Britain could control migration.

Or really, just their country? Before we leave the European Union and possibly change our country forever, we need to have an idea what […]

Frank Field, MP, gets it wrong on Question Time

Jon Danzig |

On BBC Question Time last week, Frank Field, MP, got it wrong by repeating that old myth that the EU accounts hadn’t been signed-off. I wrote him an open letter – to which I am still awaiting a reply: Dear Mr Field On BBC Question Time last night (2 June) you told the audience: ‘I […]

Leaving the EU doesn't appeal, said Boris Johnson

Jon Danzig |

Boris Johnson has spoken out against holding a referendum on whether the UK should remain part of the European Union. The Guardian reported that Mr Johnson’s intervention would help the prime minister, David Cameron. Mr Johnson told BBC Radio Five Live, “Whether you have an in/out referendum now, I can’t quite see why it would […]
